Hello, World!

I'm Philly.

Thats me!

About Me

My name is Phillbert Neil Tan but people normally call me Philly. I'm currently a First Year student at 🎓 The University of British Columbia in the Bachelor of Arts program hoping to major in 🖥 Computer Science and minor in 📈 Commerce.

Within UBC, I typically go to lecture mindlessly trusting the natural recursion while going about my classes. Otherwise, I'm currently in UBC Launch Pad -- UBC's Software Engineering club currently contributing to its in-house Slack Management bot, rocket2.

Outside of UBC, I'm the current DevOps Lead and a Fullstack Developer in Dashboard Philippines to help provide more up-to-date information amidst the quarantine life in the Philippines.

I'm also actively joining hackathons while I can such as Hack the North, DubHacks, and UBC's own nwHacks.

I've been coding since 7 years old and since then, my philosophy is to create for others and to create to learn. That is to realize that doing great is being able to help the lives of others in any way, shape, or form.

I hope to do well and to do great -- for and with others.
